1 watt each.

all have their impedance peaks around 70hz +/-, so power compression will be very low in that ballpark and that is park of the key to what you are probably looking for.

for home use, the pa460 will probably do the trick. one notch up from there might be something like the eminence impero which will have a very similar response to the pa460, but with a little more power handling, excursion clearance, and price to reflect that.
Where would you cross the 24" SI's over at if using sealed pa460's?

50-60hz is probably the range depending on how hard you are intending to drive the system (higher crossover the harder the system will be driven), but it does depend a bit on what kind of response you are getting from the subs and the mains as to how best to integrate the mbm's.

Listen. It's All Good.
